Assuming you have followed the BTK case, you will want to rent this. Buy it? Guess that depends upon your level of obsession. If you know enough about Rader then you will find Gregg Henry's performance at least somewhat inspired if not borderline spooky. His mannerisms are spot on, and he does at least resemble the man. Although Rader is far from human in my eyes, Henry succeeds in bringing out his level of depravity. This work is something made-for-TV, sanctioned by local Wichita Author Beattie (multiple cameos), that was maybe on CourtTV (?) At any rate, it is insightful, yet never really makes you feel immersed or entirely sympathetic towards any of the protagonists. At a skim 88 minutes, it is simply an "addendum" to Beattie's excellent book. Read that, then see this. It is at least somewhat budgeted. Not every detail is accurate (miniscule stuff that only would bother the locals). 3 and 1/2 stars.

Being a transplant to Kansas, I had heard some talk of the Wichita serial killer. Wichita is over 100 miles from the little Kansas town that I have lived in since 1970 so it was far removed enough from me that I paid little attention to it. However, the day Dennis Rader was apprehended I was a patient in a Wichita hospital and coverage of him and his arrest was all over the TV. I became pretty interested in the case and began to look into it. This movie follows the actual story reasonably well. I was unimpressed with the acting but if you're just wanting to see a story about what really happened, this is the closest-to-the-facts version I have seen. There are two other BTK DVDS available on Amazon, but they are unwatchable. This one isn't all that great, but it does give you an overall idea of what happened.

Format: DVD
The Hunt For the BTK Killer is based on the book Nightmare in Wichita: The Hunt for the BTK Strangler, which is also based on the real serial killer. The movie first aired in 2005 on CBS, but it later made its way to DVD. Between the years 1974 and 1991, Dennis Rader murdered ten people in Sedgwick County, Kansas. Gregg Henry plays the serial killer and he does a great job playing the psychopath.

I'm aware of the case as I live in Missouri and Rader's capture in 2005 was all over the news. Despite being made-for-television, The Hunt for the BTK Killer is a well made film with decent acting.

WOW! What a preformance from Gregg Henry who played BTK, i mean this guy REALLY got into his role, i mean have you ever seen this BTK's true confessions? Henry basically does a carbon copy of it, even mimicking BTK's speech pattern, hand gestures & other personal things. The other actors pull their load as well, Robert Foster is good as always. not to gory, but does show some disturbing BTK home invasion scenes, well worth the buy!

After watching last week's BIO CHANNEL Episode "Notorious" (The BTK Killer Speaks, 2005) it shocked me to find out Dennis Rader's biography was similar to mine as far as job professions, birthdays, and more without mention (other than the murders, of course). I never really gave it a thought to see his whole biography until now (7 years later). It gave me a chill watching it, almost like watching my own biography (I know it's all just coincidental, but still), and my own biography is odd enough as it is. The only thing I remember is reading about it in the paper back in 2005, just bits and pieces of it. Never was much for the news back then.

Out of curiosity I had to buy this DVD after watching Notorious. Great movie but not praising murderers either. The interrogation near the end is what shocked me the most ["Am I getting a special section of the jail or am I gonna be thrown in with a bunch of loonies????!!!!!"] Gregg Henry played a convincing role, looks almost identical to Dennis Rader.
